Harry Potter Director David Yates Making Dr. Who Film?

There has been some weird rumors online from Variety that the now-in-demand director of the final four Harry Potter films David Yates will be developing a Dr. Who film. This is some awesome news for the vast number of fans in U.K. and state-side because Yates has British fan base with Potter and I imagine a few state side as well (I know my GF's little sister is a huge fan).

While being interviewed by Variety, Yates told them his plans for feature-length theatrical version of the famed Dr. Who series. He will be teaming up with BBC and told them "We're looking at writers now. We're going to spend two to three years to get it right," and "It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena." H

That being said, he noted that the series is fantastic, but he said "Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch". So look forward for a brand new version of Dr. Who with a bigger and badder budget.

It will be a few years because they are currently looking for writers in U.K. and U.S. for the film. So who knows where the film will be set or will they even have a british accent. Only time will tell.

My only real concern is will there be Daleks and will they be CGI. I'm deeply concerned because everyone knows I care so much about Dr. Who (Not).
